BRAINnet Challenge Winners Announced

We would like to congratulate both Dr Jong-Wong Kim and Cliff Kerr of Sydney University School of Physics on their winning (joint) BRAINnet challenge submission.

Summary of the Winning Entry

The entry focused on demonstrating that several methods (including visual evoked potential mean voltage, de-trended fluctuation analysis and heart rate auto-correlation) show potential use as diagnostics for ADHD. Based on a simple combination of these methods,  a diagnostic measure was developed with a specificity and sensitivity of 75%, results that are comparable to existing quantitative EEG methods which use far more parameters. These findings warrant further investigation 0n larger sample sizes where statistical significance can increase and allow refinement and augmentation of the diagnostic method.
